Farmers digging in a citrus grove near Mexico's Gulf coast have found a striking, six-foot-tall statue of a female figure who may represent an elite woman rather than a goddess, or some mixture of the two, experts said Friday.

The National Institute of Anthropology and History said it was the first such statue found in a region known as the Huasteca.

The carved woman has an elaborate hairpiece and marks of status, and may date to around 1450 to 1521, the institute said. While the site where it was found is nearer to the pre-Hispanic ruin site of El Tajín, the statue shows some influences of the Aztecs.

Judging by the bottom of the statue it may have been a marker??

Hair coming down like that is very interesting.    Have to have a hard think about that.

Why would they create something like that though??  Everything has meaning to it.

I was hoping for a bit more nerdom.  I’m sadly disappointed.

 

Ashoka Tano is a Togruta, and those things on her head are ‘Lekku’ - fleshy appendages, not a headdress.

 

May the force be with you...
